Paul’s Change of Plans – 2 Cor 1

In this second letter to the brethren at Corinth, Paul begins by speaking about the hardships that he and those with him had experienced in Asia – so much so, that they “despaired of life.” He also spends some time defending his change of plans, whereby he had not come back to them as he had intended. It is this fact that some suppose to be the source of some of the trouble that had erupted, in which Paul’s apostleship was being challenged. He will continue this thought in chapter two. In verses 17-23, he assures them of the fact that he is guided by the Holy Spirit in his ministry, and verse 23 appears to state that hone reason he had not come to them was in order to avoid fanning the flames of such strife.
